Stayed here for one night only, but that was because the weather was poor, not for any other reason. Had previously read (It is in the Cool Camping guide) about this place and my sister had stayed here before and recommended it. I haven't camped since I was a kid so was a bit dubious. We wanted somewhere that was peaceful, had good facilities and hot water and we got what we wanted. Cant compare to another campsite because I haven't been to any but we got what we wanted here. I think we paid £17 for the night. Showers are token operated and as a female who spends quite a long time in the shower found that one token was plenty (25p). Make sure you take flip flops for the shower. Plenty of places to wash up so no waiting. There is a breakfast place which we didn't use but it was reasonably priced and was popular so must be good. Owner was a bit of a grump when we arrived. He asked 'is it a big tent?' to which I replied 'no' and my sister replied 'yes', to which he responded in a not so friendly manner 'well which is it?' As we hadn't actually put the tent up before we didn't really know. Thankfully 3 lovely campers helped us to erect the tent because we had no idea! The location is the best bit though. Corfe castle is a short drive and there are plenty of places to explore the Jurassic Coast. A cream tea is a must as well as a visit the The Square and Compass pub and try one of their pasties. We sat outside, having a pasty and a pint while a small group of men were singing and playing guitar. Fantastic. You can see why Enid Blyton was so inspired by this place.
